The Republic of Universal State Formula is a gargantuan, cultured nation, notable for its ubiquitous missile silos, unlimited-speed roads, and stringent health and safety legislation. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 10.441 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The income tax rate is 100%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 8,032 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 769,342 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Mandatory spouse selection pairs elderly apparatchiki with stunningly beautiful supermodels, suburban backyards are seized by the government and turned into national parks, traffic jams are a common sight due to construction work from a massive overhaul of the nation's freeways, and angry men scowl at each other across chess boards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 229,555th in the world and 11,828th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.54 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
